comment Keeping files in sync, live on Windows
@Mike I'm not sure if this was the case in 2010, but FreeFileSync now includes an app called RealtimeSync which does essentially what you describe - watching the file system for changes and syncing as they occur.

comment GNU/Linux substitute for the Windows-based TreeComp tool
@atrent That's no longer the case, at least in the Mac version of the app.

comment How can I rsync a set of subdirectories?
Actually, the Possibility 2 filter expressions are closer than I realized. They were including all of the directories, but not the files within the non-bin dirs. If I add -m, it's almost right. The command rsync -avm --include='**/' --include='**/bin/**' --exclude='*' top_dir/ dest_dir still includes the nested bin dir. Even if I change the second pattern to '*/bin/**' or 'bin/**', it still picks up the nested bin dir.

comment How can I rsync a set of subdirectories?
Possibility 1 worked for me, although I had to change ** to *, since there are nested bin directories I don't want to include - see the updated source tree above. I'm hoping to get possibility 2 to work, since although I have zsh, this will probably get used by others who don't have zsh or a new enough version of bash. Unfortunately, the include/exclude filter expressions you provided seem to match everything, at least with v2.6.9 of rsync.

Add additional bin directory to tree that should be ignored

Sorry. I hadn't made it clear that there are other directories and files there. I've edited the file tree to clarify that.

Added more files to tree to clarify it's not just src/ and bin/

comment Do hard drives lie?
It looks like SpinRite hasn't been updated in a long time. I found a page mentioning limitations with its SATA support (grc.com/sr/kb/sata.htm) and mentioning it might be improved in version 6.1, but that release seems to have never arrived. I sent an email to the creator to find out the current status of the product. I'll add another comment here if I find out anything more.
